Heavy snow fall can damage roofs or even cause roof to collapse. Recent snow storms pour feets of snow in New England and Tri-State area which could be devastating for many homes. If your home had more than 2 feet of snow you must clean your roof to avoid a roof collapse. Of course, clearing roof tops may not be as easy. With all the snow on the ground as well as on roof top, it's a very dangerous job even for professionals.
Ice dams are a major cause of home damage in cold-weather climates. They can dump gallons of water into your walls, through your ceilings, and onto your floors. Insulation, drywall, furnishings, window treatments can all be damaged or destroyed. We, at PT Home Improvement LLC, because of our years of roofing know the right and safe way to clear your roof.
What causes ice dams?
Ice dams are usually caused by heavy snowfall and improper ventilation in the attic. This causes warmer areas in your attic then the snow begins to melt, even when the outside temperature is well below freezing. When the accumulated snow on your roof starts melting it runs down your roof underneath the snow until it reaches a "colder" section like the soffit's, valleys or in gutters then it begins to freeze again, this process of thawing and refreezing is what causes an ice dam.
WARNING! Performing ice dam removal is risking severe personal injury and damage to the roof if not done properly. Never walk on a snow covered roof and make sure if you are using a ladder that you follow the proper safety procedures. We highly suggest contacting professionals with the proper equipment and roofing experience to carry out this job. Call Locally: (203)-948-7770
